It would take quite a lot of changes to totally disable it, so you'd probably be best of just overriding the $MaxMessLen variable to a larger number for admins/gmods.

thankq and i was thinking about that as well this will be better as if your admin ac gets hijacked than a unlimited text post wont be so good for the forum so i have to say your way is much better and did i say thanks  Smiley and maybe this should be standard in yabb.

In Sources/Post.pl find:

Code (Perl)
Select All
&LoadCensorList; 


And add after:

Code (Perl)
Select All
if ($iamadmin || $iamgmod) { $MaxMessLen = 50000; } 


And in Sources/ModifyMessage.pl find:

Code (Perl)
Select All
require "$sourcedir/SpamCheck.pl"; 


And add after:

Code (Perl)
Select All
if ($iamadmin || $iamgmod) { $MaxMessLen = 50000; } 


You'll obviously want to change the highlighted values to a value you find suitable. I've only tested it quickly...

ok when a admin sets the text post limit for the forum but as a admin at times i have had to go edit the text post limit so i can post some info then go back and set the old text post limit after
how can i this be edited so that the text post limit dont apply to admins or admins and gms.
